Heroes Heroes Everywhere

Heroes are everywhere. The best thing about natural disasters: they bring undercover heroes out in the open. And because of smart phones that double as cameras and video recorders, these acts of heroism are easily documented in 2017. For once, the viral posts on social media sites are things that make a person smile and …

Why Tarzan is Still my Hero

Tarzan has been around since before black and white television had Olympic swimmer Johnny Weissmuller portrayed the character whose legend has been recapped many times in movies and comics. Tarzan of the Apes was an all-human superhero (in the jungle at least). Recently, my husband and I watched the 2016 remake called THE LEGEND OF …

In Memoriam: The Day When Everything Changed

As I prepared my blogs ahead of time, I came to 9/11. Monday is my regular posting day, and I had a post about writing ready to go. Then I typed the date. And stopped. Memories swamped me. Where I was. How I felt. How I needed to connect with my traveling husband, and the …

Friendship comes easily for some people. Other people need to tangle with a metal hurdle and eat cinder from the track to find a true friend. You guessed it. I’m the second kind. In fact, ramming my right knee into a hurdle in eighth grade is exactly how I met my long-time friend. Believe it …

Wonder Woman Makes it to the Big Time

Wonder Woman isn’t just for comic books anymore. And no matter what the UN says about it, this female superhero is making it to the big screen where she will be the ambassador for empowerment of women everywhere. Sure, the United Nations can name cartoon characters as honorary ambassadors, but bringing a bustier-wearing woman to …

Happy Birthday to my biggest fan

Every author wants to have someone who believes in their writing so much they’ll buy it without blinking at the price. Some writers have fans like this who they’ve never met in real life. I have my sister. And today is her birthday. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to let everyone know what …

Good News: There are Heroes in your Child’s School

I work at a school when I’m not working behind my keyboard. Schools are important places for the present and future health of a country. Lucky for us, there are heroes there. During the ten years I worked full-time at the middle school, we fielded tons of questions when a school shooting happened. Think Sandy …
